I feel guilty when I don’t score – Nigerian striker Terem Moffi

KV Kortrijk striker Terem Moffi has set a personal target of 20 goals in the 2020/21 Belgian Jupiler League.

Moffi opened his account for the new season in a 2-1 win over Gent on August 15, before missing the weekend’s goalless draw with KAS Eupen. Despite a solid start to the season, the 21-year-old is convinced he has yet to find his best level.

“Really, every match that I don’t score I feel guilty,” Moffi told Belgian newspaper Krant van West-Vlaanderen. “Even if I played a good match. My job is to score goals.

“In Lithuania I had an average of one goal per two matches. Yes, that means that I am aiming for about twenty goals this season. Why not?”

The Nigerian, who joined De Kerels from Lithuanian side Riteriai in January, following a stunning performance in the 2019 A Lyga Championship Round, where he scored six goals in five matches. He then scored four goals in seven appearances for his new club before the suspension of football due to the outbreak of COVID-19..

The immediacy of his impact in Belgian football came as a surprise to many, but not Moffi.

“I was previously disappointed that I could not have scored in my first match at Sint-Truiden. I had made twenty in thirty matches in Lithuania, I wanted to do just as well here.”
